THE MASTER'S PROGRAMME INCLUDES A 4½-WEEK FIELD TRIP
To get valuable hands on experience and put the theories into practice, the Master of International Health students are spending over a month at the end of their first semester in a low-income community in Thailand.
Here they get a chance to explore innovative methods for addressing a wide range of global health issues. They also follow local health care workers and learn how primary health care is practised in rural districts.

Master of International Health
STUDY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The Master of International Health focuses on public health issues in low and middle income societies, and includes a broad range of theory within public health, medicine, epidemiology, anthropology, political science, management, organization, and the studies of climate change.
FLEXIBLE SPRING SEMESTER
Even though the Master of International Health is a one year full-time study programme it has some flexibility built into its structure.
The first four months - the core module - has to be taken in one go, but the following eight months - the advanced module and thesis module - can be spread out over several years, making it possible for you to alternate between studying and working, and thereby keeping in close connection with your professional job.
The only rule is that you have to finish the programme within three years.
